Early in 1939 the small Indian state of Aundh adopted a new constitution based on the principles of 'village democracy' advocated by Gandhi. Francis Watson was these to help, and in this programme he recalls what 1939 meant to him not only in the midst of this experiment but in his wanderings far and wide in India while the war clouds were gathering in the West.
Talk by Professor F. E. Adcock
These two portraits, of Antony and of his la>t and greatest rival, the young Octavian (the future Emperor Augustus), are also a study of one of the most crucial periods in European history. ' Octavian's victory,' Professor Adcock says, ' the response to Antony and Cleopatra's challenge, meant that the Mediterranean world was united and the day of an Eastern and Western Empire was deferred for centuries.'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
